How often do you weigh yourself? As I noted in another thread, my weight fluctuates quite often while bulking. If you had a big dinner the night before you weighed in, that could be it. It could be water weight. But 1000 calories doesnt = 4 lbs of fat or muscle (as was discussed in yet another thread:D)

weight yourself in the morning on an empty stomach. That's how you know my weight is 175 in the morning and 180 at night. If you you have been been doing this than congrats on the gains. As a hardgainer myself I'll take anyweight I can and I get pumped.

If you are on an empty stomach around 1-2 than you are not eating enough.

You eat before that, right?
